• Have a great summer!  We're also taking a break 

    After nine years, twenty-nine productions, and fifty-five awards, Marin Summer Theater is giving the creative team the summer off, so there will be no MST productions in 2018.  We look forward to making insanely great theatre with you, and for you in the future!
